    My days of not taking Glenn Greenwald seriously are certainly coming to a middle.

    I don't think there's any chance Joe gets a pardon, seems like a legal stunt.

    Grant Bannon immunity on the state cases and he has no jeopardy of prosecution on the federal cases so he has no standing to plead the 5th amendment. :corn:

    So Trump supporters are cheering Trump for pardoning a guy that specifically defrauded hundreds of thousands of trump supporters

    I’m kind of going to miss this insanity tbh

    Some thoughts:
    Banon, Broidy biggest names, and if the talk of Trump creating a new party (the Patriot Party) has any juice guys that will be very useful for that purpose. Several rappers, trying to appeal to black male voters. Several corrupt officials, Duke Cunningham and Kwame Fitzpatrick.

    And a couple of people associated with the Russian mob - Hillel Nahmad, who ran a bookie operation out of Trump Tower for Rusisan mob boss Tokhtakhunov, and Paul Erickson, the guy who worked with Russian spy Butina who penetrated the NRA.

    No Assange or Snowden.

    No insurrectionists, no Trump family, no Giuliani... though he still has 11 hours to do so if he wants. No GOP officials who backed his insurrection play. Most people are non-violent drug offenders, fraudsters, or charged with bribery. You know, the crimes Trump likes.

    Yeah I am a bit surprised that there are no Trumps on that list.

    Rumour has it his advisors convinced him it'd piss off the GOP enough for the Senate to impeach.

    Edit: Though some have pointed out that pardons don't HAVE to be publicly announced, just documented by the White House. So Trump and family may have secret pardons (though Biden could reveal that if he chose).

    Trump's had a hatred of performing animals ever since Seigfreid and Roy snubbed him in the 90s.

    He has to sort of make an exception for his sons.

    If anyone wants to know the kind of guy Trump is just look at who he gives pardons to.

    Apparently he issued a last-minute one to Jeanine Pirro's husband for tax evasion of $1.2 million.

    I'm sure her willingness to carry water for him on FOX has nothing whatsoever to do with it.

    He must be a Carole Baskin fan, because he didn't pardon Joe Exotic.
